This paper proposes an approach for the dynamic management of MPLS-based VPNs, MPLS and VPNs significantly contribute to achieve QoS within networks but there remain dynamic management problems associated with their use. We believe that these problems can be solved by using a policy model; such an approach also enables subscribers to keep control of their VPNs and share information with service providers. We used a PCIM-enable network model to account for the peculiarities of the two technologies and combined the resulting schema with COPS and the necessary policy tools. The resulting framework was then tested on a MPLS network. The results show that, with some limitations, the approach does provide the expected functionality.
